Marilyn Mazur - Flamingo Sky

posted by Diane on 21.04.15 16:55 in Music Reviews Print  

The release is for doing nothing in particular, for watching the butterflies as they dance in the hedgerows. Perhaps the flight of the flamingo (or butterfly!) across continents and the sounds and music evoked is what binds this release together. An investment in this release should provide many years of enjoyable listening. A masterpiece by one of the world’s finest female musicians.

I first saw Marilyn Mazur, the world-leading female percussionist perform live at the EFG London Jazz Festival last November (2014). Ms. Mazur is a Danish musical percussionist - a multi-award winner, who approaches her work in a unique way. During the live show, Marilyn was joined onstage by Nils Petter Molvaer, Jan Bang and Eivind Aarset – all equally exceptional musicians. I knew that Ms. Mazur was a Danish percussionist. But what to expect? Would she be like another Evelyn Glennie? Well – I was greatly surprised and impressed!


That night, Marilyn Mazur wove a spell with her own unique Scandinavian Spirit Cave group, both inside and out of her unique self-contained stage "house”, comprising – but not limited to - drums, bells, pots and dustbins.


As a woman, I find it interesting to now review Ms Mazur’s latest release, "Flamingo Sky” for Dave’s Place Music – ...


* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.
